Front of diff324 views9 inch under the van. This is not the final install angle, the pinion is far too low. Things to note here are the placement of the brake lines, I used a stock "T" but replaced teh steel lines. There's no compatibility issues between the wheel cylinders and the Astro's lines. I did however have to make the hole larger for the T to mount to one of the studs on the housing.
